This is just branding. All virtual deployments, no matter if they are local, cloud, VMware, Hyper-V, KVM are all branded as "CloudGuard". As you can see from sk158292 all images are branded as "
CloudGuard for Private Cloud images".
Private Cloud is simply a fancy name for a local virtual environment. No matter if you are deploying a management installation or a gateway. If you are running it virtually and it's a Check Point installation the current naming means it's a "CloudGuard for Private Cloud".
I find this to be rather confusing. But this is how it is and these images are the recommended approach for deploying virtual installations. Like many have pointed out, for Nutanix installations the only way to have support for SCSI is to use the qcow2 for KVM/Nutanix. If you do the installation via ISO you won't be able to install using SCSI.
I don't know why Check Point is making these images so hard to find. There are images for R81, but there is no link to them on the R81 product page. The same now goes for R81.10. We have images for R81.10, but qcow2 for the time being and still there are no links to them on the R81.10 product pages.
R80.40 (sk160736) contains this link:
CloudGuard See sk158292
R81 (sk166715) and R81.10 (sk170416) for whatever reason do not. It makes it rather confusing and no wonder why most people end up using ISO for virtual deployments and not images even though using images are pretty much the superior way for deploying in pretty much every respect.
